Arsene Wenger warned Jack Wilshere that he is playing for his Arsenal future at Bournemouth before the midfielder completed his season-long loan move, according to reports in the British media.
The Sun on Sunday are claiming that the Arsenal manager spoke to the England international in a tense phone call on transfer deadline day as Wilshere sought a temporary switch.
The article states that Wenger was reluctant to allow the 24-year-old midfielder to move to the Cherries on a season-long loan.
However, the same story says that Wilshere was determined to secure first-team minutes after Sam Allardyce left the midfielder out of his first England squad.
The former Bolton Wanderers midfielder made his Bournemouth debut on Saturday afternoon as Eddie Howe’s side lost 1-0 to AC Milan in a friendly at the Vitality Stadium following former Liverpool midfielder Suso’s winner.
Wilshere didn’t secure a starting spot in Arsenal’s opening three Premier League games of the new season.
